Lost Rabbit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this property, and it was just as good, if not better than last year. Thank you Rhonda and Tom for making our stay so effortless. We have reserved Lost Rabbit again, for next year

Great for the family

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house, had everything we needed. Close to everything and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. You'll appreciate the elevator real quick!

Clean, welcoming, put together well

  • 5 of 5

We came to Lost Rabbit to celebrate our daughter's graduation from UNCW. We were able to fit all 4 generations of our immediate family in without feeling very tight. Watching the sunrise was spectacular. My grandson had his first experience playing in the sand on the beach and feeling the surf. We ordered some BBQ and brought it in. The table was big enough for all of us to sit around and eat together. If we make back to the beach again, I think we will make every effort to return to Lost Rabbit again. We just loved it there!

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The property is very large and is full of all of the amenities. We rented the Lost Rabbit over Thanksgiving and were able to host our extended family in the home with ease. The home was well equipped, large and comfortable. I am giving 4 stars only because we had some very minor issues. We had no hot water on one of the floors, but the owners were very attentive to the situation. We let them know that we did not need immediate resolution (Being sensitive to the holiday weekend) but when the problem became worse with water leaking, they had a plumber at the house within an hour. We were very impressed with how quickly the returned our call and how thoughtful they were regarding our comfort. The only other minor suggestions, we had no hand soap, or extra toilet paper in most of the bathrooms when we arrived, and a few of the lights were out in certain rooms. Again, minor issues that we were able to deal with, only noting for future reference. I would definitely rent the property again. The owners were so pleasant to work with, communication was prompt and courteous!

Amazing Stay at Lost Rabbit

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Carolina Beach for several years the first week in August. This was our first stay at Lost Rabbit and by far the best week ever!!! Not just because the weather was almost perfect, but because Lost Rabbit IS the perfect place for a family to get together and have fun. We have children ranging in age from 10 years old to 2 years old, and there was something for everyone. The house was very clean, well stocked, and well organized. Can not think of anything else we could have needed or wanted, that wasn't already provided. This includes beach chairs, bogey boards, playground, wading pool, and much, much more. There are even many items there just for children. The rabbit hunt was a great success. Not sure if all were found... We scheduled our stay there for next year even before our week was over. Highly recommend Lost Rabbit and the owners, Rhonda and Tom are the greatest. Thank you for making our week so memorable.

Love The Lost Rabbit!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in a row here and if anything the experience was even better this year. The owners are very responsive and accommodating, you can tell they care about their guests and aim to please. The house is amazing, and most importantly very clean (and easy to keep clean thought the week). it is easy to never want to leave Carolina Beach when you are staying at The Lost Rabbit!!
